This was our first time at Benihana. It was very good! My husband had steak, lobster and shrimp. I had sushi, lobster rolls and I ordered a side of their famous chicken fried rice. We
also shared an order of tempura vegetables and shrimp. My husband's dinner came with 5 courses including soup, salad, dinner, sides and sherbet for dessert. I'm not able to eat anything spicy but my husband loves spicy foods, so it was nice that we were both able to get what we wanted. We are planning on a return visit in August for our soon to be daughter in law's birthday!

It was our first time in Benihana, so we were noobs when we were ordering our food. When the chef cooked the bood, he mistakenly put exchanged the food of other people to ours. Then just removed it like nothing happens, then put it in the other corner. It was embarasing and humiliating.

I didn't expect this service from a $180 food for 3.

Food was great, service was terrible had to wait for two hours before we even Acknowledged sitting at the table, in two hours and 15 minutes before we even got served. Plus you have to wait for the chef to cook the food and he was missing food items from all of our meals

The food was great, but the sitting with other people other than family or friends just sinks the mode and is very awkward and that kinda ruined it for us, but other than that it was amazing.

I called about ten minutes before 8 pm and was told that it would be an hour wait for two people.

Opentable saved the day. I found 8pm for two people, without a problem.

The chef did a good job. The shrimp was good and the teriyaki steak was delicious. The pink sauce was way too watered down and tasted weird. The carpet is filthy.

I had never been to the Schaumburg Benihana’s. I love the food at the Benihana’s in wheeling. However, I now live closer to the Schaumburg location. So I invited my family and friends for my birthday. Unfortunately as I was about to eat my server put a big dish of soy sauce in front of my seat which I didn’t see because I was using the bathroom. She placed it on top of my napkin so when I went to grab my napkin the soy sauce spilked all over my brand new 500.00 purse! I was extremely upset and it got on other gifts of mine to that I had just opened! I told the manager and my server and they only offered my husband and I 20% off our bill! That is not right and unfair. Poor service and I am not going back to this location. What a shame! Food was great though!

Everything was beautiful. The waitress was awesome. The only problem jihad was with the dipping sauce. The mustard sauce use to be thicker and use to stick to your meal. I actually purchased a bottle. But they are now watered down. It tastes salty and it doesn't stick to your food. I literally threw away the mustard sauce I purchased because it was so watery and salty. That is a shame because that was some awesome sauce. Now it is horrible. I'm not sure this was done to save money or what but you need to find another way to cut back

Haven't been here in 16 years, won't go back again. No garlic or golden toppings for seafood. Not good hibachi menu for gluten free eating. Get them in, get them out format. No personalization. Sorry we tried it. Even the sherbet didn't taste like sherbet. Will continue to go to Yue-Sun in Wood Dale. That's the best!!!

We had reservations for hibachi and even though our table was fully seated the dinner service was poor. It took more than 25 minutes for chef to arrive. The manager did stop by at the end of the dinner and offered her apologies. I would recommend that this be done when it was known service was slow so customers feel appreciated and know it is a matter being resolved. Waiting until after dinner while handing the Check is poor judgement.

I had a reservation for 6:30pm, my husband and I were on time and we still had to wait 15-20 minutes to be seated. What's the point of a reservation if you still have to wait?

We had a great time this past weekend at Benihana! Our server was excellent and we never had to ask for drink refills, she just brought them! Our chef was fabulous and funny and our kids were enthralled in the whole experience. The food was also phenomenal, my husband wouldn't stop raving about the fried rice! We will be back for sure.
